About the Series: Putting important aspects of our lives in order helps provide a sense of peace and freedom. The Family Estate Planning Series is an eight-week “course” of 90-minute classes taught by area guest speakers. Each week offers a different attorney or other expert, so you can learn about the fundamentals of estate planning; wills, probate and trusts; health care directives; information stored digitally; and other essential topics. You’ll receive a full binder of reference and planning materials to guide you in achieving
that peace of mind for yourself and your family.

This free, in-person classes run eight consecutive Wednesdays with 90-minute sessions. Participants are asked to commit to the eight session, as each one complements the others. For reservations or questions, call the Community Foundation at 775-333-5499 or email Jamie Klund at

Estate decisions require knowledge in many areas: accounting, finance, legal, insurance, taxes, investments, and charitable planning. Experts will help you navigate the topics of advanced health care directives; charitable income & tax planning; being a trustee and executor; and more. The workshops take place over eight consecutive weeks.

Classes are offered to you as a public service. No charity will solicit you for a donation. No financial or insurance products will be sold. Your name will not be given to the speakers. All speakers are volunteers and recognized local experts in their field.

Keep it up. The Family Estate Planning Series is a great service! I’m glad I had enough sense to attend."
